Spy shots from the Chevrolet Sail EV testing in China. The Sail EV debuted as a concept on the 2010 Guangzhou Auto Show, the production version will likely debut at the 2012 Guangzhou Auto Show in November.
The Sail EV concept in 2010. GM didn’t release much specs. We know the electric motor has 87hp, which according to GM is good for 130km/h. Range is said to be150km but GM hasn’t confirmed that. The Sail EV will be made in China by the Shanghai-GM joint venture that also makes the normal Sail. The latter is a very cheap car, priced from 39.800 yuan to 79.300 yuan. The EV version however won’t be any cheaper than 120.000 yuan, with subsidies that might go down to a hundred, which is still too expensive for a small crappy car that pretty much can’t go anywhere.
